Water Soldier

Stratiotes aloides

This listing is for x3 Water Soldier plants.

An unusual, native plant with long, narrow and serrated leaves. They like to have their roots in contact with soil or mulm on the base of the pond. An empty plant basket with pea gravel would be a suitable anchor. Most ponds containing Stratiotes seem to have clear water. 

This plant will sink to the bottom of the pond over winter to protect itself by pulling itself down with its roots. In the spring it will rise to the surface again.
